Taylor Wessing Launched LitiGate’s AI-driven Litigation Platform

Law firm Taylor Wessing has moved from a test phase of the AI-driven litigation platform LitiGate on a select number of cases, to a rollout across the wider community of contentious practices involving its application to many of the most significant pieces of litigation or arbitration.

Taylor Wessing chooses LitiGate as its go-to litigation lifecycle platform to support clients with contentious matters, following the firm’s work with the platform’s developers during the testing phase.

The firm supported LitiGate’s ground-breaking machine learning developments from its early conception in 2018 and was one of only three global law firms to establish an initial relationship, taking an active role in shaping and leading the next generation of litigation solutions.

With expertise in the technology sector and its renowned reputation for innovation through technology solutions, the firm’s adoption of LitiGate will enable the transformation of extensive manual tasks and data analysis to deliver meaningful value to its clients.

Taylor Wessing has been impressed by the technology’s ability to deliver cost and time efficiencies across numerous tasks and projects, from initial risk assessment to smart document searching, witness evidence review and bundling. The firm made the decision to deploy LitiGate as the only solution on the market that can automatically identify and classify facts, key events and issues from both filings and court documents as well as evidence, correspondence and other types of documents.

LitiGate enables disputes and investigations teams to instantly create detailed case chronologies, automatically classify all files and key events, cross-check and track the factual and legal issues, collaborate with clients, experts and counsel, and create fully court-compliant bundles.

Laurence Lieberman, Disputes and Investigations Partner said: “LitiGate is a perfect example of first-class AI technology that can revolutionise the way we support our clients. The digitisation of disputes is fast changing. In the last year we’ve seen our courts transform to virtual and digital reality, and LitiGate is a leading player in shaping this. It’s been a pleasure to work so closely with Nimrod and the team over the past few years and see how the platform has continued to evolve.”

LitiGate’s CEO, Nimrod Aharon, commented: “Taylor Wessing is among our most innovative clients. As a forward-thinking firm looking to deliver more value to its clients, we’re excited that Taylor Wessing clearly sees the value of our AI-powered litigation platform across a variety of everyday tasks and throughout the entire case lifecycle. LitiGate’s growing adoption across the UK, US and Australia shows an increasingly fast-paced change in the legal profession, to meet clients’ demand for more cost-effective and innovative ways to deliver legal services”.
